Adding: ‘You’re just shoved into a room with all these famous people and you’re not supposed to talk to them and be their friend, even though you don’t f*****g know them. That’s not my vibe.’

‘I’m sure it’s fun if you’re someone who is friends with a lot of famous people, but I’m not. I didn’t know who the f*** to talk to. I felt so awkward that I literally called my boyfriend in the middle of it, but the dinner was fine,’ Lourdes said.

‘I mean, I was sitting with Jeremy O. Harris, who I love, and Irina Shayk, who I love a lot. She’s so funny,’ the star noted. 

Lourdes, who turned 25 on Thursday, also chatted about being the daughter of Madonna and trying to pave her own way in this world.

The star, who paid for college and her apartment herself (going to the University of Michigan), said to the magazine: ‘We don’t get any handouts in my family. Obviously, I grew up with extreme privilege. There’s no denying that. But I think my mom saw all these other kids of famous people, and she was like, “My kids are not going to be like this.”‘

‘Also, I feel like if your parents pay for things, then it gives them leverage over you. My mom is such a control freak, and she has controlled me my whole life. I needed to be completely independent from her as soon as I graduated high school.’ 

The stunner also revealed the advice mom Madonna gave her about getting caught up in money.

Most recently she says after she graduated she wasn’t earning a lot of money and she had been ‘so concerned about making a decent living and wanting to live more luxuriously than I was.’

Obviously, I grew up with extreme privilege. There’s no denying that. But I think my mom saw all these other kids of famous people, and she was like, “My kids are not going to be like this”‘

Madonna told her: ‘”Remember this s**t is not real. It’s not about the money or your face or how hot you look. It’s about what you’re bringing into the world and what you’re’ going to leave behind.”‘ 

Lourdes says that ‘always shakes me when I get too caught up in everything.’ 

Lourdes was asked about her mom’s music, and she said she doesn’t ‘cringe’ when she hears it, and her experience with it changed as she has gotten older.

‘I’m increasingly able to recognize how influential and amazing this woman is, and how empowering to other women and ahead of her time she has always been.’

On her mom Lourdes, who starred in the SavageXFenty show most recently, reflected: ‘She’s probably the hardest worker I’ve ever seen. I didn’t inherit that, unfortunately. I inherited her control issues, but not her work ethic.’

When asked about her typical day, Lourdes said: ‘I smoke a lot of weed. In general, I don’t really have an average day, because of my work. I’m constantly traveling. When I’m not doing that, I try to go to a dance class or do some yoga.’ 

Lourdes also revealed that while she has an Instagram account, she thinks ‘Instagram is not real.’

‘It’s the biggest lie of all time,’ with people creating personas that are nothing like their true self she explained.

And she hates ‘TikTok people’ – which she says maybe its because there’s ‘something I’m not fully understanding.’ 

In the interview, Lourdes said that while she doesn’t feel the ‘need’ to get married, she does like being a caregiver, revealing that she likes cooking for her boyfriend.

She is also ‘scared’ at the idea of giving birth but she is ‘down for kids.’

Madonna, 63, took to Instagram on Thursday, October 14, to wish her eldest child Lourdes, whom she shares with Carlos Leon, a happy 25th birthday.
